Our server was great. We enjoyed seafood for dinner and a few apps first. The cocktails were great. The atmosphere is cozy and romantic. The desserts were delicious. The manager came to check in with us. We enjoyed a quiet dinner on a Sunday evening.

This restaurant is a great place for drinks and appetizers and also for dinner. Great deals - drinks and two glasses of wine for $15. Nice to sit at bar. Wait staff really tries to please. Lots of parking right outside the door.
